She researched and wrote the scripts for Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer and Terror in The Woods for the Lifetime network, describing the events surrounding two real-life tragic murder cases. In 2019 she got the chance to pen two fictional murder mystery for the small screen the first of these was Morning Show Mysteries: A Murder In Mind for Hallmark which aired on their Hallmark Movies and Mysteries Channel in the USA.
The Morning Show Mysteries series centers on Billie Blessings (Holly Robinson Peete) a successful restaurateur who also hosts the cooking segment on Wake Up West Coast, a popular TV show. Billie was once suspected of murder but after clearing her name with the help of Detective Ian Jackson (Rick Fox) the pair remained friends and occasionally find themselves at the heart of another mystery.
In A Murder In Mind Billie comes to the aid of a friend and former employee who has recently got her big break in the lead role of a brand-new TV drama Kelso's Law. Excitement turns to horror as a dead body is uncovered. The finger of suspicion soon falls on Billie's friend after it's revealed that she was being blackmailed by the victim. Billie again teams up with Detective Jackson in a race against time to clear her friend and uncover the identity of the killer.
Amber fans in the UK will have another chance to see Morning Show Mysteries: A Murder In Mind on Tuesday the 1st of June at 2:15 PM on Channel 5 and at 3:15 PM on Channel 5+1.
There are different channel numbers depending on which digital TV platform you use. I would check on-screen guides and any local channel listings for the correct channel numbers.
The Channel 5 website has nothing listed at all in the 2:15 PM time slot. It is displaying on my electronic channel guide though so I can only assume the omission from the website is a mistake. However if anyone sees or knows anything different let me know via email or our social media channels. I've embedded the US trailer below so you can get a taste of the movie.
